Question about IDEAL Electrical Supplies
I moved into a 20 year old house and discovered 2 outlets on the same circuit didn't work (the remaining 3 outlets do work, 1 on one side of one nonworking box, the other 2 on the side of the other nonworking box). I bought a circuit tester (a Gardner Bender) and all three lights on the tester showed when I plugged it in the outlets (the red light was dimmer then the 2 orange lights). I checked the connections on the outlets and all were correctly installed (white on the silver screws and black on the brass screws and green to ground. Note: if it means anything, one box had 2 white wires, the other only 1 white). Just to be sure, I replaced both outlets but they still don't work and still show all 3 lights on the tester. Any ideas on what the problem is?
